Blanca is 43 years old, lives with her partner and has three children. She has been selling cosmetics, and clothing of all kinds for approximately 15 years.

She learned this work thanks to a friend who was working in the same business. She goes house to house offering her cosmetics through magazines, and when she has a good quantity of orders, makes up the order to the company. It is similar with the clothing, as she offers women's, men's and children's clothing through catalogs.

The loan for which she is applying to Fundación Campo is to buy a greater quantity of products, as the company gives her a greater profit percentage when sales are greater.

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
